Hello! We have a fabulous colour combination for you this week at Just Add Ink – who doesn’t love pink & teal together? Add in the aqua tones of Pool Party and it’s just divine.
I used this inspiration to spark the idea for the second card we made at Social Stamping this week. Using the Pretty Perennials stamp set we made this fun fold card –
The flowers are stamped in Magenta Madness, Just Jade and Pool Party ink – using a combination of stamping with full strength ink and stamping after stamping on scrap paper. This technique gives great variations in tone using the same ink pad.
The tag on the right side nests into a slot made using the Classic Label punch. This retired last month but we used it today because punches are so easy to use with groups. If you’re making this card at home and you don’t have the label punch, you can use any long, slim die you have in your die cutting sets.
We used the Delightful Tag Topper punch to finish the end of the tag where it slides into the space on the front of the card. You could leave this as a square edge or cut it into a banner/triangle shape.
I added a touch of Just Jade DSP (from the 2020-2022 In Color DSP pack) under the tag which is a nice finish for the middle panel, but you can also see it when the card is closed, for some extra colour.
On the front, I’ve added finishing touches of die cuts from the coordinating Perennial Petals Dies to the Magenta Madness flowers and Pastel Pearls to the Pool Party flowers.
This bundle didn’t carry over into the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue and won’t be available after the end of next month. It’s one of my all time favourite bundles made by Stampin’ Up! If you haven’t got yours yet, make sure to add it to an order soon!
